They are highly skilled and genuinely care about your child's education and well-being. They treat the children with respect and adoration. Communication with parents is excellent. It's obvious that they love what they do. The athletics programs are top notch. The school itself is perched high up on a hill with an amazing view of the rolling hills and valley below and the mountains in the distance. We are very fortunate to be able to have our children attend a school the caliber of Holston Elementary.
